French Clubs. The budgets of the Top 14 clubs are published and it's quite interesting to see what their piggy banks hold. But what about the Pro D2 sides? Is there anywhere to see what their budgets are. Some teams in the lower divisions; Fed 1 and Fed 2 all of sudden find a rich benefactor and/or a fresh revival of interest in their club and turn up with some real buying power. Any ideas?

Some clubs in the lower leagues like Périgueux, Limoges and Tyrosse have plenty of cash to spend. Most of the other clubs are secure, but a few still struggle to survive. A few seasons ago we seen Gaillac fall from Pro D2 to Fédérale 3 and last season we seen RC Chalonnais fall from Fédérale 1 to 3 due to bankruptcy. I don't know if you can find a site for lower league finances, but I know these budget numbers for Pro D2 clubs are accurate.
